1981 Mercury CougarReview
Decent. — For an early 80's Ford product, the XR7 was a good looking car. It had the common Ford problems, but it drove well, even if it was a little too slow at top end. The gas mileage was near 17 MPG, which was about average for the time period.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Well styled, fun to drive.
Cons: A little sluggish at top speed.
